PCB Footprint Creation Made Easy (IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard)

Footprint creation is typically a time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone process. Tech Consultant Philip Salmony from Phil's Lab outlines how Altium Designer's built-in 'IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard' can make footprint design simple and efficient, including automatic 3D model generation.

He explores an example footprint design for a SOIC-8 package, using the manufacturer's datasheet.

The IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard comes as part of Altium Designer and supports all standard footprint templates - from simple passive components to QFNs, BGAs, and more.
